★★★★★ Everyone was so kind in assisting us with our father's passing. We really appreciate the care and attention they gave us. Thank you.Kelly M.Kelly M. ★★★★★ We’re very pleased with the kind service we received from Green Cremation. They were very reasonably priced and always available for our questions. My most treasured piece will be the finger print pendant.Carson H.Carson H. ★★★★★ My husband wanted a green cremation. We chose the "return to the earth" option. Not only was this the most affordable but also the most eco friendly. Marlena was wonderful and patient and really helped me get exactly what we wanted. I highly recommend Green Cremations.Roxanne O.Roxanne O. ★★★★★ It was a Sunday afternoon, and I was sitting in the hospital with my dear husband who had just begun receiving hospice care. I was so grateful that finally, he was receiving comfort care and that he could rest comfortably and not deal with constant pain. All I wanted to do was sit with him, hold his hand and talk to him, and not think about funeral arrangements. The hospice worker was wonderful, and before leaving, provided me with a list of different funeral homes, but I only glanced at a few places online. Two hours later my husband passed away and I realized I had to make a decision, so I called Cremation Green, the only place I’d looked at online that had no negative reviews. It was a Sunday evening, but Marlaena Gonzales answered the phone herself, and immediately, not only eased my fears and anxiety but surprised me by not asking me to do a single thing. She was soft spoken, kind, and comforting, and only asked that I tell the nurse that I would be using Cremation Green for my husband’s arrangements. She explained that the hospital would provide all the necessary information and then Cremation Green would handle everything. She also said that I would receive a text the following day with a link to their website, and the forms that needed to be filled out, but that I could complete them when I felt up to it. She was amazing! There was no pressure to do anything immediately and certainly no pressure to purchase any goods or services. The Cremation Green website lists the services and products they offer and all the prices are clearly stated. You can put together the package you want, the cost is always exactly what is stated, and their pricing is very reasonable. Also, if your loved one is a Veteran, Cremation Green ensures that you get a beautiful, military-folded American flag. Everything is done online. I worried about that, as I’m a bit technologically challenged, but Marlaena was a simple phone call away, whenever I had a question. She ALWAYS answered the phone herself, and she patiently and kindly explained things. I was never put on hold, nor did I have to be subjected to options when I called. I can’t thank Cremation Green and Marlaena enough, for their courtesy, kindness and professionalism. I feel that the best compliment I can give them is to use them for my final arrangements, which I plan to do in the very near future.Margaret F.Margaret F. ★★★★★ I used Green Cremation to help me with my wife's wishes.

How Our Universal City Funeral Home is Preserving the Area’s Park-Like Environment

We now know that traditional funeral services have an extremely negative impact on the environment that keeps adding up over time. By providing greener end of life care, we help families arrange disposition services they can feel good about. We’re also helping to honor the wishes of the deceased who want to ensure their funeral has a positive effect. With each green funeral we perform less pollutants and emissions are put into the local environment, helping Universal City maintain its natural appeal.

We Make Funeral Costs in Universal City Simple and Transparent

If you believe that funeral services should be simpler and less stressful, we agree. Our Universal City funeral home services were created to make the process much easier on you and the environment. The best part is, our approach lowers the cost of funeral services in Universal City while improving quality.

Dedicated to Better Death Care Through Innovation
A lot of funeral homes aren’t trying to improve the death care industry, which means they aren’t making an effort to improve services for families. Too often funeral services are based solely on tradition and not innovation. At Cremation.Green we’re actively working to create better death care options by continuously innovating. It’s an investment we’re happy to make because it ensures our clients experience the best the death care industry has to offer.

Easy Funeral Arrangements That Can Be Made Online
Today more funeral homes are offering online services, which is something that’s always been done at Cremation.Green. It’s the most eco-friendly way to make funeral arrangements, but more importantly, it’s much easier on the family. We understand no one wants to have to make a trip to a funeral home when they could initiate the process from the comfort of their home.

Funeral Costs That Are Fair and Transparent
One of the most frustrating aspects of funeral services is the cost. Arranging a funeral can cost thousands of dollars, yet many funeral homes aren’t upfront about their fees. The fees aren’t exact, and it’s unclear what is included with the cost. That’s not how we do business. We’ve made funeral costs fair and transparent by:

  • Putting the basic rates online so you have a better idea of what the different options cost.
  • Offering online customized quotes that give you a more exact estimate based on what you want.
  • Providing a General Price List with itemized costs so you can choose the services that work best for your budget and needs.

We can also provide a custom funeral service quote over the phone and explain the fees if you have any questions. Give us a call any time of day, any day of the week.

100% Digital Funeral Home

Mother working on netbook near sleeping daughter

We’re working to bring all safe funeral options to Universal City.

We are continuously exploring the latest innovations in the death care industry and leveraging new technologies, but that’s not all. The Green.Cremation team also works to inform state lawmakers so they can create the legislation that leads to a better death care industry in Texas.

The fact is state lawmakers are the ones who decide what funeral services are available to Texans. We’re working every day to make sure all Texans are able to choose any safe disposition option. It’s what we call disposition freedom. Our work isn’t over until your family has every option available, because every Texans should get the funeral services they want.

Losing a loved one is difficult, working with a funeral home shouldn't be.

Full Selection of Eco-Friendly Funeral Services in Universal City

Cremation.Green is the authority on eco-friendly funeral services in Universal City. As the first carbon-neutral funeral home in Texas, you can trust that we are incorporating the latest technology to reduce the impact of disposition. We offer the best selection of green funeral services in the state, and we’re proud to provide options to families in Universal City that are environmentally mindful while still being affordable.

Flame Cremation

Flame Cremation Services in Universal City

Our clean flame cremation is an excellent choice for anyone who wants a traditional funeral service with less of an impact. Our proprietary process is more efficient at every stage so that there are fewer emissions. It’s a cleaner, greener form of cremation that uses incineration.

Water Cremation

Water Cremation Services in Universal City

If you are concerned about the use of incineration but want to receive the cremains of a loved one, water cremation is the ideal solution. The end result is the same as flame cremation except you’ll likely receive around 30% more cremains. Plus, the process is more environmentally friendly given that it doesn’t create air pollutants and uses 90% less energy.

Natural Burial

Universal City Natural Burial Services

Burial can be eco-friendly when it’s natural. Our natural burial services help you arrange an intimate funeral that doesn’t pollute the ground or water. You’ll have more control over the process so that you can lay your loved one to rest in a way that won’t have a negative impact.

Natural Organic Reduction

Universal City Natural Organic Reduction Services

We believe all Texans should have the disposition options that are available in other states, including natural organic reduction (NOR). That’s why we partnered with out-of-state NOR providers who are able to work seamlessly with our team. We are now among the select funeral homes in Texas that can help arrange natural organic reduction for Universal City residents.

We plant trees in honor of every family that we work with.

We have partnered with Sustainable Harvest International to plant trees where they are most needed around the globe.

Sustainable Harvest International is an environmental nonprofit with over 25 years of experience partnering with smallholder farmers to adopt regenerative practices that nourish people and the planet.
